The wonderful ISBE conference, this year in Minneapolis! Four talks on our work: Luke McClean on honeyguide vocal mimicry, Nick Horrocks on camouflage and thermoregulation in ground-nesting birds, Cassie Stoddard (of Princeton University) on egg pattern signature evolution in cuckoo finch hosts, and Claire Spottiswoode on honeyguide-human mutualism.
Tanmay Dixit was a member of a team organising and lecturing in the inaugural Evolutionary Biology Crash Course. This course, aimed at undergraduate or early-postgraduate students, teaches evolutionary principles to students who have had limited opportunities to be exposed to evolutionary ideas. The course is funded by the Equal Opportunities Initiative Fund of the European Society of Evolutionary Biology (ESEB). Tanmay presented lectures on behavioural ecology and evolution, focussing on kin selection, coevolution, and parasitism. Over 700 students, with the vast majority from the global South, attended the course, which was a resounding success!
